Morning tea ‘thank you’ to volunteers

Twenty two volunteers were recognised for their efforts thanks to Sport Waikato.

With volunteer week running from June 17 to 23, Sport Waikato held a special morning tea last Monday to recognize some of the fantastic volunteers that serve our local community.

NZ Parkour CEO and volunteer Damien Puddle spoke at the gathering at Sport Waikato’s Dick St premises, before local cycling legend Sarah Ulmer handed out certificates of appreciation to the several Waipa volunteers present, recognized for the free or low-cost groups and classes they run in the community.

“We had such a fun morning,” said Rebecca Foy, Waipa district coordinator for Sport Waikato.

Local volunteer Jade He, who runs Tai Chi in the Park every Tuesday morning at Victoria Square, spoke to the audience of volunteers and their supporters.

Sport Waikato does not “have” volunteers but supports sport and recreation volunteers in the community. Twenty two volunteers were recognised at the morning tea this week, from organisations and groups including Young @ Heart (Pirongia), Wednesday Walkers (Cambridge), Seriously Social Cycling (Te Awamutu), Senior Walkers (Te Awamutu), Therapeutic Tai Chi in the Park (Cambridge), Afternoon Walkers (Cambridge), International Global Walk                (Cambridge), Seniors Easy Exercise (Te Awamutu), 60’s Up Leamington Walkers (Cambridge) and Aquafit (Cambridge and Te Awamutu).
